Waking up each morning in bed to view the lake and mountains said I am on holidays. Beautiful, peaceful lake with a golf club, across the lake, appearing as if on an island with a mountain back drop.There was nothing that had not been thought of. Comfortable fluffy bed. Gas heater that heated the room quickly. No noise from the... More

These apartments are excellent with lovely views. The service too was great. Two points to consider: 1 They are close to the road so looking out over the road to the lake can be noisy with doors / windows open. They are double glazed so it is reasonably quiet with doors & windows closed. 2 The ground floor apartments don't... More

These are great apartments - exceeded our expectations by a long way. If you stay there - look out for the lakeside route into town, it's stunningly beautiful. The view from our apartment was stunning.

We arrived at Pounamu Apartments in Queenstown after a long drive, around 7:30pm, for a 3-night stay. Manager/host Priscilla was on hand to not only welcome us but to guide us to at how to spend our time in Queenstown. Despite the lateness of hour, she made phone calls and arranged two tour activities for the following two days, both... More

The staff are extremely helpful and very happy and cheerful. The unit we stayed in had magnificent views absolutely spotless and the attention to detail was... More

It is my third night of a four night stay and I can say I love this place. Wonderful view, wonderfully appointed and great location. The staff have been nothing but helpful and friendly. There was a problem with a fire alarm on the first night and the staff's response exceeded my expectations. The complex is close to a busy... More

These self-service apartments are conveniently located within a short walking distance to downtown Queenstown. They are located far enough away, though, to be quiet and out of what can be a rather crazy holiday town. Very convenient to have laundry immediately outside of the apartment door, and the staff was extremely knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions about the area and... More

My husband and I stayed at the Pounamu Apartments in February for our week long honeymoon after getting married in Queenstown. Whilst the apartments were top quality, well equipped with amazing views and a great location, it was the friendly "above and beyond" helpful service provided to us by Leo and Priscilla that really made our stay so special and...

The place was nice, well kept, clean, good location. The main reason it gets five stars is because of the service, especially Rowena their marketing manager. When we arrived she basically sat down with us and helped us plan our entire week so that we didn't miss out on anything. She always treated us like we were her number one... More
